GILDED THISTLE – Deborah Merrick Wilson  (HAND)

 

When a group of 13th century Vikings attempted to ambush sleeping Scottish soldiers by approaching them barefoot under cover of night, they failed to see the thistle field surrounding their target.  Their cries of pain awakened the Scots, saving the day and causing the humble thistle to become the symbol of Scotland. This second in a series of gilded floral emblems of the United Kingdom is executed using traditional English Goldwork techniques with gilt and silver threads imported from an English goldsmith house. No prior stitching experience is required although it is helpful if students are comfortable manipulating a threaded needle. Attendees will explore  beginning and advanced intermediate Goldwork techniques including invisible couching of Pearl purl, seeding over high, contoured felt padding, contoured chipping over string  and felt padding with smooth and bright check purls, basket pattern chipping over thread padding, “S”ing and “Z”ing spangle attachment, invisible couching of Grecian Twist, and pattern needlepointing with metallic floss.  The class kit contains color photos of the finished project and padding stages, all materials necessary to complete the piece, information on the fabrication, characteristics and idiosyncrasies of all threads, sage green canvas with pre-drawn design and complete instructions with diagrams of each technique. Individual techniques will be demonstrated by the instructor as necessary for students to view prior to attempting them.  These demonstrations will include information regarding hints as to how to most easily execute the techniques as well as how to avoid common pitfalls.

 

Student Requirements: General Supply List for hand sewing.

 

Additional Kit Cost: $70.

If your machine is an older model that does not have editing features, I will have my laptop to make any necessary changes.
